Homemade Zamboni

zamboni

What can you do with a riding lawnmower with a blown engine? Instructables member web4deb turned hers into an ice resurfacer. Here's how:

  1. Stripped off all the old mower decking and non-important parts and repainted it purple.
  2. Put on a small surplus engine.
  3. Made a scraper blade by grinding an edge into a piece of steel and mounted it to the lifter handle that was used for the mower deck.
  4. Found an old water tank and mounted it on the back.  Then took a piece of copper pipe and drilled little sprayer holes into it.
  5. Added a squeegee mate that could be raised and lowered.
  6. Studded the tires with short stainless steel screws.
  7. Added some front and rear lighting for night-time driving.  No Zamboni is complete without the blinking light!
